Opening Time and Space

An Introduction to the TSK Vision

 

August 17, 10-11:30 am Pacific, repeating weekly for 4 weeks (ends Sept. 7)
3 levels: $40 (scholarship), $80 (regular), and $120 (supporter)
Online via Zoom

We inhabit space and act in time: nothing could be more obvious. But the Time-Space-Knowledge Vision introduced by Tarthang Tulku is all about questioning the obvious. This includes our understanding of time and space.

While it seems obvious that we live in space and act in time, TSK tells us that space is not an empty nothing and time is not a linear sequence of moments. We only see them this way because of our understanding of who we are and our place in the world. When we challenge that understanding, we live in the world differently—fresh, clear, and with deep appreciation.

This 4-session course introduces such possibilities. We will rely mostly on the final chapters of Love of Knowledge, the second book in the TSK series, a resource that even devoted followers of the TSK Vision may not be familiar with. We will read and discuss short passages from the book online, and will conduct experiments in transforming time and space, based on the exercises the book presents.

The course is open to newcomers to the TSK Vision as well as seasoned practitioners. It will meet over Zoom every Saturday at 10:00 am Pacific Time (19:00 Central Europe time), starting August 17, 2024.
